    A Killing Frost by R.D Wingfield is the sixth and final book in the Inspector Frost mystery series, set in the English town of Denton The books inspired a long running TV series starring David Jason While the books all have a certain sameness, it is a comfortable, welcoming sameness.In this story, we find Frost s job once again hanging by a thread His boss, Police Superintendent Mullett, who hates Frost and never willingly supports him, has brought in Detective Chief Inspector to do his dirt A Killing Frost by R.D Wingfield is the sixth and final book in the Inspector Frost mystery series, set in the English town of Denton The books inspired a long running TV series starring David Jason While the books all have a certain sameness, it is a comfortable, welcoming sameness.In this story, we find Frost s job once again hanging by a thread His boss, Police Superintendent Mullett, who hates Frost and never willingly supports him, has brought in Detective Chief Inspector to do his dirty work for him and either have Frost fired or moved to a new police district Skinner is a particularly unlikeable character who just wants to make everybody miserable, hang them out to dry for any errors and reap all the rewards for any of their successes.While Frost must deal with this, he is also kept busy working on countless cases, with his staff reduced to a minimum as Mullett has volunteered the majority of the station to help with a drug investigation in another district So Frost and his willing and mostly capable remainder investigate the discovery of a body, blackmailing at a local grocery chain, missing girls and other smaller cases As always, Frost blunders as much as he succeeds He is a capable, very likeable person, curmudgeonly and a bit of a dinosaur, but his heart is in the right place He is especially distressed by the missing girls and works gamely to come to a solution beforebodies turn up.As you read the Frost series, you will see similarities between all of them, but you will, nonetheless, enjoy them immensely Frost is tireless, working on little to no sleep and pushing his team to follow his style.The Frost series has been a favourite of mine and I m sad that RD Wingfield is no longer with us to continue writing such an enjoyable character 4 stars

    As an adult it s a rare thing for TV or movies to bring me to a book One exception was Inspector Frost Maybe ten years ago the British television series was shown on A E I adored it The character of Frost and the actor, David Jason, who played him were a perfect match Frost is a typical detective in some ways He s a loner, cares too much about victims, is not politically correct, chafes under authority and doesn t care about things or appearances but what sets him apart is that he is also As an adult it s a rare thing for TV or movies to bring me to a book One exception was Inspector Frost Maybe ten years ago the British television series was shown on AE I adored it The character of Frost and the actor, David Jason, who played him were a perfect match Frost is a typical detective in some ways He s a loner, cares too much about victims, is not politically correct, chafes under authority and doesn t care about things or appearances but what sets him apart is that he is also an every man Oh yeah and he s not an addict or recovering addict either, that s refreshing He s the guy who lives down the street in the house where the grass always needs to be cut, whose car rattles a bit and who knew your Father years ago Short, rumpled and earthy David Jason makes Frost a slightly softer man than he is in the novels but Frost is still the type of memorable character you want to spend time with and not just a jumble of habits that grow wearisome.After seeing the series I read the novels Inspector Frost was based on by R.D Wingfield Frost At ChristmasA Touch of FrostNight FrostHard FrostWinter FrostThey are terrific books The mystery part of the mysteries are tightly plotted and page turning Wingfield builds the depressed midlands city of Denton from the poor up The characters are vivid, working class, real people from the coppers to the villains The interaction between Frost, great at his job but hardly a model civil servant, his fellow officers and the public is by turns sharp, funny and heartbreaking I have to say I learned some very colorful slang from these novels as well.Why am I heading down memory lane with the Inspector Well because there is now a brand new Frost novel available Sadly, R.D Wingfield passed away a few years ago but author James Henry has taken on Frost and brought us a brilliant prequel to the series In First Frost, Jack is only a Detective Sergeant without the spectacular track record that afforded him leeway to be insubordinate latter in his career, with an unhappy marriage and a special gift for irritating others His direct superior is on a bender and the other is missing so when a young girl disappears Superintendent Mullett is forced to give the case to Frost despite his better judgment.As of right now First Frost has not been published here in the U.S and I cannot find any indication that it will be, BUT the original novels in the series are available here and definitely worth your time

    My very last Frost book ever And I loved every minute of it I have noleft to read which makes me sad I ll never know how Frost ended his career But will forever be in love with scraggly detective He s a sour puss who always gets his man or men in the end He angers everyone in authority with his slovenly ways and I never hold that against him He ll always have a piece of my heart.

    Alright, so I enjoyed this book But I m still going to use this space to pick holes in it in an annoying manner you have been warned.I originally thought this book was published a long time before it was, with only the references to mobiles and illegal immigrants giving it away I know it was written shortly before the author s death, and I do wonder if Wingfield hadn t really moved with the times It s set in 2007, but several aspects give it the feel of an 70s or 80s book.Just little thing Alright, so I enjoyed this book But I m still going to use this space to pick holes in it in an annoying manner you have been warned.I originally thought this book was published a long time before it was, with only the references to mobiles and illegal immigrants giving it away I know it was written shortly before the author s death, and I do wonder if Wingfield hadn t really moved with the times It s set in 2007, but several aspects give it the feel of an 70s or 80s book.Just little things, like you don t really have teenagers called Debbie or Jan anyIf a woman abandons her sick two year old sick enough that neighbours who break into her home when hearing the child screaming take him to hospital from 8pm until 8am because she s out on the piss and with some man, you would expect Social Services to be called automatically, rather than the mother being threatened only with a charge of wasting police time Dialogue too seems rather vintage Prostitute Bloody hell, it s the flamin filth Frost Exactly, now sling yer hook, darlin , before I run you in for offering goods past their sell by date I counted 4 instances of Frost dribbling smoke through his nostrils The money aspect seems a bit out of date too I can t see police in 2007 getting quite so upset about 500 as they do in the book.They refer to the hyoid bone as the sicoid bone They also refer to DNA tests supposedly done in 1977 Shame DNA fingerprinting wasn t invented until the mid 80s.Cashiers reading the amounts on petrol pumps manually and writing them on receipts by hand In 2007 Similarly WPCs and smoking in police stations If I had had this as an ebook, I would have run a search through to delete every flamin and bleedin That would have helped a lot I would also have replaced every instance of the words cow , tart , and bitch with woman , which isn t a word the book features very often.All in all, it s an alright police procedural to listen to while you do stuff, but it s pretty repetitive, the plotting isn t great, and it seems like something that s just been brought back to life after being cryogenically preserved back in the Nixon era At least that adds an extra dimension of entertainment to it for annoyingly picky readers

    A Killing Frost is the sixth and final book in the Frost series As with the previous books, Wingfield does a great job at weaving together a multiple set of engaging plot lines, overloading the already overstretched Frost with cases and internal battles That he does so without losing the reader is quite remarkable given the number of open cases being handled and the quick and relentless pace of the narrative Along with the plotting, the characterisation is excellent and the dialogue and inter A Killing Frost is the sixth and final book in the Frost series As with the previous books, Wingfield does a great job at weaving together a multiple set of engaging plot lines, overloading the already overstretched Frost with cases and internal battles That he does so without losing the reader is quite remarkable given the number of open cases being handled and the quick and relentless pace of the narrative Along with the plotting, the characterisation is excellent and the dialogue and interactions between characters is superb, as one might expect from a writer with much experience of writing radio plays Frost is his usual rumpled, unorthodox, coarse, sarcastic, insolent self, who countermands his bosses orders, cuts corners, fiddles his expenses and procedures, makes plenty of mistakes and errors of judgement, and relentlessly pursues justice The result is a thoroughly enjoyable read, full of black humour, that makes a nice finale to what was an unfinished series Wingfield died shortly before publication and the series has been continued by James Henry pseudonym for James Gurbutt and Henry Sutton , who have written three prequels I might yet give those a go I certainly anticipate going back and reading this excellent series again at some point
